Sponsored by E.ON, the two-part vodcast is being broadcast in both audio and video format from both days at edie’s Sustainability Leaders Forum. During the event, edie will sit down with high-level speakers and interested delegates to reflect on some of the key themes from the event.

The Day One episode saw edie’s content editor Matt Mace sit down with Tesco’s head of environment Kene Umeasiegbu, Interface’s sustainability manager Jon Khoo, Lloyd’s Banking Group’s manager of engagement and responsible business Marina Shilo and Global Action Plan’s programme assistant Cat Leggat.


For episode two, Matt is again on hand to discuss how businesses can successfully grow during the low-carbon transition. Matt is joined on stage by Beccy Speight, the chief executive of the Woodland Trust, E.ON’s senior strategic account manager John Walsh and Siemen’s environment manager Sarah Jones.

The episode explores whether businesses can truly align sustainability and profitability and how sustainability teams can change the opinions and actions of the board to inspire change. Speakers also discuss key sustainability themes including the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the ongoing plastics crisis.

You can listen to this conversation in the traditional podcast format, but a video version will be appearing on the website in due course.
